Edward Steichen: 1915-1923

Main Gallery

March 20 – May 16, 2009

Press Release

Beginning March 20, 2009, Howard Greenberg Gallery will exhibit select photographs made by Edward Steichen between 1915-1923, one of the most personal and experimental periods of Steichen’s career.  In the complex years surrounding World War I, Steichen became absorbed by Modernism, gradually abandoning his Pictorialist style in favor of straight photography, with a strong sense of design and clean, uncluttered compositions.
